After looking at several scamp
type campers I have found that the 17' Burros seem to be set up best for what I want to use it for. I plan to turn this camper into a traveling engraving studio and hotel room as I travel around the country guest teaching engraving at various host studios.
I found a 17 widebody burro
in a neighboring state. It is a 1986 with no AC, no heater, no awning
, no bathroom. The owner is asking $5500 for it. From the pics it does look to be in really good condition and looks as if it has been well taken care of.
To be 27 years old and have NO amenities $5500 seems a bit high to me when I compare it to what I can get for that same money on the classifieds here and on craiglsist ads. I can find several FGs that are 10 years newer and have at least a working AC and heater for that same price range.
Am I wrong in thinking that price is a bit high? Would $4000 to $4500 be a more realistic price for that camper? I only ask because I may end up giving the guy an offer on it. I don't want to be a jerk and low ball him by a bunch, yet I don't want to pay more than that trailer is really worth either.
IF I buy it I will have to have at a minimum an AC unit and a furnace
installed in it. That's going to cost a fair chunk of change.
I welcome any thoughts you all have on it.
